NDIS_FILTER_INTERFACE structure

The NDIS_FILTER_INTERFACE structure defines the attributes for an NDIS filter.

Syntax


typedef struct _NDIS_FILTER_INTERFACE {
  NDIS_OBJECT_HEADER Header;
  ULONG              Flags;
  ULONG              FilterType;
  ULONG              FilterRunType;
  NET_IFINDEX        IfIndex;
  NET_LUID           NetLuid;
  NDIS_STRING        FilterClass;
  NDIS_STRING        FilterInstanceName;
} NDIS_FILTER_INTERFACE, *PNDIS_FILTER_INTERFACE;

Members

Header

The NDIS_OBJECT_HEADER structure for the filter interface structure.

NDIS sets the Type member of the structure that Header specifies to NDIS_OBJECT_TYPE_DEFAULT.

If the handle passed to NdisEnumerateFilterModules belongs to an NDIS 6.30 or later object, then NDIS sets Revision to NDIS_FILTER_INTERFACE_REVISION_2 and Size to NDIS_SIZEOF_FILTER_INTERFACE_REVISION_2.

If the handle passed to NdisEnumerateFilterModules belongs to an NDIS 6.20 or earlier object, then NDIS sets Revision to NDIS_FILTER_INTERFACE_REVISION_1 and Size to NDIS_SIZEOF_FILTER_INTERFACE_REVISION_1.

Flags

A bit field that defines the type of NDIS driver that implements the filter. This member must be set to one of the following driver types:

NDIS_FILTER_INTERFACE_IM_FILTER

The filter is implemented in an NDIS 5.1 or earlier filter intermediate driver.

NDIS_FILTER_INTERFACE_LW_FILTER

The filter is implemented in an NDIS 6.0 or later filter driver.

NDIS_FILTER_INTERFACE_SEND_BYPASS

The filter is currently not attached to the send path. This flag is only set if Header.Revision is greater than or equal to NDIS_FILTER_INTERFACE_REVISION_2.

NDIS_FILTER_INTERFACE_RECEIVE_BYPASS

The filter is currently not attached to the receive path. This flag is only set if Header.Revision is greater than or equal to NDIS_FILTER_INTERFACE_REVISION_2.

FilterType

The behavior type for the filter. This type must be one of the following values:

NdisFilterTypeMonitoring = 1

A monitoring filter.

NdisFilterTypeModifying = 2

A modifying filter.

FilterRunType

The runtime attachment priority type for the filter. This type must be one of the following values:

NdisFilterRunTypeMandatory = 1

A mandatory filter. If the filter does not attach to the driver stack, NDIS will tear down the rest of the stack.

NdisFilterRunTypeOptional = 2

An optional filter. If the filter does not attach to the driver stack, NDIS will not tear down the rest of the stack.

IfIndex

The NDIS interface index of the filter module.

NetLuid

The NET_LUID value that is assigned to the filter module. The NET_LUID is equivalent to the interface name (ifName in RFC 2863).

FilterClass

A UNICODE string that specifies the filter class. This string is the same as the FilterClass INF file entry.

FilterInstanceName

The filter instance name.

Remarks

The NdisEnumerateFilterModules function returns one NDIS_FILTER_INTERFACE structure for each filter in the driver stack. The Flags member identifies the filter as an NDIS 5.1 or earlier filter intermediate driver or an NDIS 6.0 or later NDIS filter module.

A light-weight filter may dynamically insert or remove itself from the send or receive path by calling NdisFRestartFilter and providing a NDIS_FILTER_PARTIAL_CHARACTERISTICS structure to NdisSetOptionalHandlers.

Requirements

Version

Supported in NDIS 6.0 and later.
